I got a new server that has Windows 2003 because the old server had a hardware failure.  The server that I am using is both the terminal server and the licensing server (I know that this is not recommended, but there are only 5 local users and 1 remote user and cannot afford two servers).  How do I transfer the license from the old server to the new server?  I read Microsft's Tech net article that says that I should restore the server from backup.  Do I have to restore the entire server.  The OS came factory installed so it is not the same as the original.  I guess my questions is, is there any way I can just back up the portion of the server that I need to restore to the new server for the terminal server licensing?  We are changing out software as well during all of this, and would rather not restore all the old data back and then remove it if I don't have to.
